Guyana | Comienza la vacunación contra el coronavirus a mayores de 18 años


Guyanese who are 18 years or older will now be eligible to receive their COVID-19 vaccine, says Dr. Leslie Ramsammy, Advisor to the Health Ministry.

“We go to all age groups starting age 18 and above as of tomorrow for COVID-19 vaccination,” Ramsammy posted to his Facebook page.

So far, the Health Ministry has seen a positive response to it’s aggressive vaccination campaign with more than 70,000 citizens having received their first dose of either the Sinopharm, Sputnik V or AstraZeneca vaccine.

This, Health Minister Dr. Frank Anthony says, is attributed to the increase in the awareness and education campaign.

Additionally, another shipment totaling 83,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine is expected to arrive in the new week.

The Sputnik V vaccine, like its Chinese counterpart, has a 28-day wait period for the second dose to be administered; the AstraZeneca vaccine, on the other hand, requires a three-month dosage interval.
